Batman Beyond, or Terry McGinnis, is the future hero of Neo Gotham, created by Bruce Timm and Paul Dini in 1999 as a sequel to their acclaimed Batman: The Animated Series. The Batman Beyond series ran between 1999 and 2001 and McGinnis didn't make his first appearance in the comics until 2010 in Superman/Batman Annual #4. McGinnis took up the mantle of Batman after Bruce saw potential; together, with Terry armed with a state-of-the-art futuristic batsuit, the duo patrolled Neo Gotham with Bruce acting in an Oracle role. Their story continued in a digital first series called Batman Beyond 2.0 and was collected as graphic novels.
Spider-Man 2099, or Miguel O'Hara, is the Spider-Man of the future created by Peter David and Rick Leonardi in 1992. O'Hara grew up in a future timeline after the Heroic age and led research inspired by the original Spider-Man; after being drugged by Alchemax, the company he worked for to perform the research, Miguel underwent genetic testing and granted himself Spider-Man's abilities. He would later work with the original Spider-Man after being flung back through time.
